Lisp reimplementation of the backend of the android shopping list app.

For fun, a lisp equivalent to GroundApps/ShoppingList_Backend which serves as the backend for this app.


With the default configuration, the server can be run with

(ql:quickload :shopping-lisp)

In production, you'll want to set ENV=production so the nest framework uses production settings. At the moment, nest is still under heavy development, so YMMV, but it works well enough for now. I recommend a reverse proxy, since most lisp web servers don't receive the same sort of security scrutiny one would want with a public-facing server.


You will need two libraries that aren't in quicklisp to run this, because I've written them and don't feel like they're mature enough to publish for general use, yet.

I think I'm going to work on a Docker image at some point, for now it's just a standard lisp package.


To configure the backend, all you need to do is pick a password for the server. The development password is just password, and you can see the hash of that stored in config/development.sexp. When you run the app in production, you'll want to set the value of :auth-hash in config/production.sexp, which is what will be used when the server is run with the environment variable ENV set to production.

To generated that hash

(ql:quickload :cl-pass)
(cl-pass:hash "your_cool_password")

Nota bene: the configuration files are read as lisp expressions and so the hash should be in double quotes like any lisp string.
